I'm sorry Tom, but I think you're the one being angry and rude, not me. 
Because I question the sidewalk walk that you teach and your super-strong 
objections to the 8CB, you say I'm being angry and rude. All I'm saying is 
that your views are contrary to what I've experienced in Argentina. You 
teach a heel walk, most Argentines don't. You don't teach the 8CB, most 
Argentines do. I just want to know why you think you know better than 
the Argentines. That's all. I'm not being angry or rude. If it's because of 
cultural difference as Jay has suggested, please tell me. If it's because 
you want to make the dance easier and more accessible for your students, 
fine, that's a reason. I'm sure you've done a great job in your community 
but maybe some might want to get better and better and even surpass 
their teacher. I just think you might be underestimating and limiting the 
potential of your students.  Something to think about - yes?
